About Me


To explore, experiment and enjoy


Hey, so I've grown up in South Africa, and have never traveled overseas, but that's all about to change!!!

I enjoy meeting new people, and making new friends, so I hope soon to be making international ones!!!


Try anything once, and probably twice before you decide whether or not you enjoy/dislike it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am generally up for anything, learning a new skill, doing something I've never done before, exploring new and interesting places and meeting new people are all things I enjoy, I'm also fairly active, so hiking, and sport are a plus for me.


So far I've only socialised with a few people, but soon I am going to be off to the USA, where I hope to find out a lot more about how to couch surf!!!
